Simple Plan Polishing Off Sophomore Album

The Bob Rock-produced set will be led by the single "Welcome to My Life." Other tracks set to appear are "Crazy," "Shut Up" and "Perfect World."
"The main reason why we chose Bob was because we wanted to make sure our new album sounded closer to our live sound and that's exactly what we're achieving," says lead singer Pierre Bouvier. "The new songs are a natural progression from our earlier album and we really pushed ourselves to write the best songs we could, both lyrically and musically."
"Still Not Getting Any" is the follow-up to 2002's "No Pads, No Helmets... Just Balls," which entered The Billboard 200 at No. 183 but eventually climbed to No. 35 in January of this year. The set has sold 1.7 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
A North American tour will kick off in late October and run through most of next year. Beforehand, the group will open 12 European dates for fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne, beginning Sept. 26 in Munich and wrapping Oct. 12 in Sheffield, England.
